Bethesda Celebrates 25 Years of Elder Scrolls with a Morrowind Giveaway


Bethesda is celebrating 25 years of The Elder Scrolls today. On this day back in 1994, Bethesda released the first Elder Scrolls title called The Elder Scrolls: Arena for DOS. And while it's not that easy to play the original Elder Scrolls on modern machines, you should still be able to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

It's probably a good thing that FOR TODAY ONLY (March 25, 2019), you can get a free copy of Morrowind to keep forever and ever for the life of the Bethesda.net Launcher. Here is how you can snag your free copy of Morrowind, plus some other freebies. Do...
 

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Announced, Pre-orders Available Now


After multiple weeks and a few months of teases, including a long running ARG surrounding a dating app called Tinder, we now have an official announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Paradox Interactive made the big reveal just moments ago via a GDC party. The party was "supposed" to be for a new Tinder reveal but thanks to some unintentionally cheesy live-action role playing, it turned out to be a big reveal for Bloodlines 2.

This is a direct sequel to the previous title that came out back in 2004 on the very same day that Half-Life 2 was released....
 

Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

Library
First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...
 

Nintendo Embraces Indie - Cuphead, Darkwood, a Dancing Zelda, and More Revealed Today for Switch


Are you ready for the invasion of the Indies on the Nintendo Switch? Earlier today, a new Nindies Showcase for Spring 2019 outlined a good number of independent developed titles that are coming soon to the portable console otherwise known as the Switch.

Some of the highlights in today's announcement include Cuphead from Studio MDHR. This one will be out on April 18. In addition, Cadence of Hyrule - Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda was also announced today. This rhythm-action title takes its catchy tunes to Hyrule and features playable Link and Princess...
 

The Outer Worlds, Remedy's Control, Detroit: Become Human, and More Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusives


As part of today's GDC presentation, Epic Games announced a number of timed exclusives that are coming first to the Epic Games Store. Among these games are The Outer Worlds, Control from Remedy Entertainment, and even some PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream.

Some of these titles, such as The Outer Worlds, will also appear on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. I guess this just lends more confirmation that Epic is less about purchasing exclusives and more about simply paying companies to keep their games off of Steam. Consumers should not...

  • 1080p Update for Assassin's Creed IV is Available Now on PS4

    1080p Update for Assassin's Creed IV is Available Now on PS4

    Though it shipped running at 900p, the 1080p patch for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is now available for the PlayStation 4.
    "Finishing the game at 900p gave the development team the extra room in terms of the GPU and CPU usage to ensure the framerate never dips below 30 frames per second," explained Ubi.

    Though they also say that you probably won't even notice the difference between 900p and 1080p. Now, if it were a jump from 720p to 1080p, then yeah, you'd probably notice.

    They also said they've added a "brand-new anti-aliasing technique" to the game.

  • PlayStation 4 Reportedly Costs $381 to Build

    PlayStation 4 Reportedly Costs $381 to Build

    It's actually rather amazing that the PS4 only costs $399 (USD) at retail stores as a recent hardware breakdown found that the components total about $381 (USD) for the system. This is in stark contrast to when the PlayStation 3 debuted in 2006. That console was found to cost $805 to make and sold for "just" $599.

    To get into the particulars, chips take up a big proportion of the cost of the internal components. An unusually large microprocessor that is manufactured by chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices costs about $100 to build. When combined with the cost of memory chips, at $88 for 16 individual memory chips, you have more than half

  • Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    VGX is the new name for the Video Game Awards (VGAs) from years past. It seems like this year will be no exception to the rule of "new game trailer reveals" at the event as Square Enix is alluding to a new Tomb Raider next-gen reveal at this year's event in December.

    It started off simply with an Amazon Italy listing for a PS4 version of Tomb Raider. After, a Square Enix representative told IGN to keep an eye out for events in December for a potential reveal.

    Tested Compares PlayStation 4 Hard Drives - SSD, Hybrid, and HDD

    Will Smith from Tested.com recently put the PlayStation 4 through a number of tests to perhaps answer, "how much will a solid-state drive improve performance on a console?" The answer may not surprise you but there are some catches here.


    Does this sway your decision to perhaps upgrade your PS4 hard drive? If so, which direction are you leaning more towards? Simply a higher capacity drive? Or will you instead opt for a hybrid drive instead now?...

  • Black Mesa to be Sold as a Retail Release on Steam Possibly on Source Engine 2

    Sure, you waited years for the release of the underwhelming free mod that wasn't even complete. Now, you're waiting even longer for that mod to come out on Steam after being included in the first batch of Greenlit titles on Steam.

    Today, on the 15th anniversary of the original Half-Life, comes word that Black Mesa will be sold for a price on Steam. Yes, the free mod will be given a few updates and sold for a price on Steam. It still doesn't include Xen but it is on a new version of the Source Engine. Perhaps it's on Source 2?
